LOL: 40 White House INTERNS Release an Open Letter Alleging that the President Is Ignoring the INTERNS' Demands for a Ceasefire | Main | Lumpday Cafe

The Bee:


Outstanding: Ted Cruz will join Texas AG Ken Paxton in endorsing the primary opponents of the squishy establishment "Republicans" who voted with Democrats to defeat Texas' school choice bill.

From TexasScorecard:

"My basic rule is, if you have supported school choice and you are otherwise relatively conservative, you're quite likely to get my support. If on the other hand, you voted against choice, the odds of getting my support are zero. And I am very likely to endorse your primary opponent. When I do so I don't do so gently. I cut TV ads and radio ads and I come in and we beat you," said Cruz.

Earlier this month, 21 Republicans in the Texas House sided with Democrats in killing a school choice proposal. While some of those members have already announced their retirement, Cruz says he is prepared to replace them with more conservative members.

"l'll tell you this, the 21 Republicans that voted this last session to kill school choice, every one of those 21 I want to make an invitation to their primary opponent: run against them and I will back you."

"I'm going to do everything I can to beat those 21 Republicans," he added.

Billionaire and former major donor to his alma mater Bill Ackerman says that the presidents of Harvard, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania must "resign in disgrace" over their defense of calls for genocide against Jews.

Depending on the "context," you understand. The "context" being: Did a slightly brown person call for the genocide of a slightly lighter-skinned person? In that case, it's an acceptable call for "decolonization."

Hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman is calling for the presidents of Harvard, MIT and the University of Pennsylvania to "resign in disgrace," citing disgust with their testimony at a House hearing Tuesday on antisemitism on campus.

"Throughout the hearing, the three behaved like hostile witnesses," Ackman wrote in a post on X, "exhibiting a profound disdain for the Congress with their smiles and smirks, and their outright refusal to answer basic questions with a yes or no answer."

Ackman, a Harvard graduate who has been a vocal critic of how universities have addressed antisemitism, took particular issue with how the presidents answered a question on Tuesday about whether calling for the genocide of Jews violates their respective school's code of conduct on bullying or harassment.

None of the school leaders explicitly said that calling for the genocide of Jews would necessarily violate their code of conduct. Instead, they explained it would depend on the circumstances and conduct.

"They must all resign in disgrace. If a CEO of one of our companies gave a similar answer, he or she would be toast within the hour," Ackman said on X. "The answers they gave reflect the profound moral bankruptcy of Presidents Gay, Magill and Kornbluth."

In response to Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik asking whether calling for the genocide of Jews would violate Penn's code of conduct, Penn President Liz Magill said: "It is a context dependent decision."

Stefanik responded with shock.

"That's your testimony today? Calling for the genocide of Jews is dependent on the context? That is not bullying or harassment? This is the easiest question to answer yes for," Stefanik said.

Ackman strongly criticized the response.

"Why has antisemitism exploded on campus and around the world? Because of leaders like Presidents Gay, Magill and Kornbluth who believe genocide depends on the context," Ackman said.

Don't click on that link; it's a CNN post, which immediately pulls a Jayapal and says "Buh Elon Musk..."

Karine Jean-Pierre continually violates the Hatch Act, which forbids paid government personnel from making political appeals, and no one does anything about it.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made history on Friday, becoming the first Biden administration official to rack up multiple Hatch Act violations.

She just can't stop making history.

Jean-Pierre and her deputy, Andrew Bates, violated the longstanding federal ethics law with their June 14 statements denouncing "MAGA Republicans," the Office of Special Counsel found. The Hatch Act bars federal officials from making political statements in their capacity as government employees. Jean-Pierre and Bates made the incriminating statements just one week after the office ruled the press secretary's use of the phrase "MAGA" in the leadup to the 2022 midterm elections had also violated the Hatch Act.

"On June 14, 2023, both Ms. Jean-Pierre and Mr. Bates used MAGA in official communications," Hatch Act Unit chief Ana Galindo-Marrone said in a letter first reported Friday by NBC News. "We recognize that these actions were contrary to our June 7 warning letter and advisory opinion."

Jean-Pierre openly challenged the Office of Special Counsel's June 7 warning before committing her second Hatch Act violation, claiming during a press briefing that White House officials had "given the sign-off to use" the MAGA phrase. Despite its initial warning that future violations would be a "knowing and willful violation of the law," the Office of Special Counsel declined to punish Jean-Pierre for her repeat violation, saying she has since stayed true to the letter of the law.


The White House did not return a request for comment.

I mentioned this yesterday, but this clip resurfaced by the DeSantis campaign is getting new attention, and will probably be a topic of debate tonight. If the leftwing moderators allow discussion of it, of course.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said in an interview that she believes that the law should "stay out of" irreversible, experimental so-called "gender-affirming" care for children and that parents "should handle it."

A clip of her remarks in the interview with CBS Mornings began circulating on X, formerly known as Twitter, this week. In the clip, Tony Dokoupil asked Haley: "What care should be on the table when a 12-year-old child in this country assigned female at birth says, 'Actually, I feel more comfortable living as a boy.' And "what should the law allow the response to be?"

"I think the law should stay out of it and parents should handle it," Haley responded.

In the full interview, Haley added: "This is a job for the parents to handle. And then, if that child becomes 18, if they want to make more of a permanent change, they can do that. But I think, up until then, we see with our teenage kids, they go through a lot during puberty. They go through a lot of confusion. They go through a lot of anxiety. They go through a lot of pressures. We should support them the whole way through, but we don't need to go in and force something in schools. We don't need schools sitting there hiding from the parents what gender pronoun they're using. We don't need to have those conversations in schools. Those are conversations that should be had at home."

Nikki Haley responded with lies:

On Wednesday, Haley's campaign sent Townhall the following statement from Nachama Soloveichik, Haley's communications director:

"With his poll numbers plummeting and his campaign imploding, Ron DeSantis is desperately throwing lies at the wall, hoping something will stick. Spoiler alert: It won't. Nikki Haley has long said she opposes gender-changing surgeries for minors. Bald-faced lies won't save DeSantis."

Yes, we can see in the quote: Nikki Haley supports "reversible" procedures like hormone blockers (which are not actually reversible) for those between 12 and 18 and, for those 18 or older, a "permanent change:" Surgery, of course.

It's not a "lie" to say she supports transgender procedures for kids. She just seems to be implying that she wouldn't bless surgery for 12 year olds. Just hormone blockers and "social transitioning."

She'll probably be Trump's VP.

Washington Post staffers threaten to walk out of work tomorrow. "I covered an insurrection!" one Twitter-Warrior bravely proclaims.

Note that the establishment media does not show the faces of antifa "protesters," just as antifa demands they don't.

But they're brave warriors of truth. They covered an "insurrection!"
